National Secretaries Day has been observed since 1952, although it started with a different name and a slightly different purpose.
At that time, support personnel was needed across America; and National Secretaries Day was established to encourage people to join the field. Of course, ideas and terminology have changed; and with numbers ranging up to 9 million, the ranks of the administrative support professional is a force to be reckoned with. Today, the International Association of Administrative Professionals offers continuing education and networking opportunities; and works across the globe to set standards of excellence for the industry.
Recent studies have shown that the majority of employees think that the administrative personnel are more important to daily operations than the boss. A non-formal social media poll asked the admins themselves to describe their daily duties in a few words; answers included miracle worker, concierge, and therapist. Many employees believe the admins know more about their day than even their spouse. With administrative professionals experiencing such unprecedented influence at the company, having their own day to show appreciation just makes sense.
